Since she was a teenager, Sandy Davenport’s determination to stay physically fit has earned her a resumé full of accomplishments, which include authoring her own fitness and lifestyle manual, designing corporate-wellness programs, and winning the Ms. Alabama Bodybuilding Championship twice. After a car accident left her injured, she discovered Zumba's invigorating, low-impact fitness system to keep herself in shape while she recuperated. Her fascination with the fun, energetic workout inspired her to become a dance-fitness instructor, seeking out training from Zumba architect Beto Perez.
Today, Sandy calls upon her extensive training and experience in Latin and ballroom dance to lead exercisers of all abilities through Zumba's fun, easy-to-follow dance moves. In her studio's friendly, judgment-free environment, students feed off the contagious energy of pulsing music with Latin and international dance moves while cutting rugs to reach their fitness goals.
